Shipwrecked in 1928 on an island off the western coast of Greenland, Kent describes his life living among the Eskimos above the Arctic Circle. This is Rockwell Kent’s private diary and sketchbook from his 14-month sojourn in Greenland from July, 1931 to September, 1932. His autobiographical novel “Salamina” was based on this experience.
